Participate in Grace’s “Give Help” Initiatives! There are several ways to pitch in and make a difference during this Coronavirus pandemic, and the Thank You Card initiative is a great way to get your kids involved.
The classic game “the Floor is Lava” is sure to get your family to exercise their minds and bodies. Start by collecting random items from around the house – pillows, couch cushions, chairs, stools, etc. – and set them on the floor randomly around the room. If you are feeling adventurous, you could even set it up all over the house. Once a parent says “the floor is lava,” everyone must step on something that isn’t the floor, and move around the playing area without touching the ground. You can turn it into a game by setting up a race or competition. For example, you could place a special item in the center of the room and see who can get to it first. Or, you can race the rest of the family from one side of the room to the other. The possibilities are endless! Play as long as interest lasts. When you are done, encourage your kids to help put everything back where they belong.
